HiFiMAN RE-272 Review - Page 20

post #286 of 418

RE-272 is the only IEM I've kept.  Even bought a second pair.  Having owned the W4's, SM3's v1/v2, the fit on these are seamless and I have no problem at all with their double flange.  They're not perfect but what it lacks doesn't annoy or offend me.  Treat them like you would a high-end offering and they will shine.  Smooth, smoooth, smooooth and the most transparent of all three I've tried; good as it gets thus far for me.  It has that HiFiMan sound signature.

might wanna add here, for the people worried about bass, with computer audio the right player or iTunes Plugin can fix that very well just via enhanced data processing. Hacven´t touched my Bass boost since I got this set. For mac users I can recommend the "BitPerfect" iTunes Plugin...

using these with a zo for certain tracks, pairs beautifully.

I kind of feel that the 272s have more bass than the RE0s. Not that i ever wanted more bass than on the RE0s, but to me they have more bass. One of the best earphones, and RBsund, they are going to make you search for better recordings and Mastering, Vinyl rips of your favorite bands. But at the end, you are going to fall in love with music hard.

you said the magic word , brother

VR + J3 + re-272 = hello sonic bliss

 

re-272 is such a great iem , and still going for 200$ at amazon.com and still people will go on and buy overpriced,overrated iems from better known companies.....

Has anybody tried some Balanced amplifier with the RE272s? i am thinking of building a Balanced CMOY for it....

If anybody else has tried, ofcourse else than ClieOS, i would certainly like to hear their impressions...

 

Regards

I have mine up for $195.00 for a long time and am pleased that they never sold. Got low ball offers and declined. Worth more when you think about it because of being properly broken in and all. They are sounding just dandy with my Leckerton amp and classic iPod. Sometimes with my Headstage Arrow. Happy that I'll be able to compare them to RE-600 at some point. My intentions for selling at the time was to get coin for buying lenses for a new camera. Photography is one expensive hobby.

My longest lasting iem.  I don't think I'll ever sell them.  Had the RE400's and sold them already.  Just didn't match the sonics of the 272 for me.  

post #297 of 418

if you ain't a basshead they are definitely a keeper , it's been almost 2 years since i got them and i am very happy with them , no complaints whatsoever - paired with the arrow 4G they make a nice combo

(good to see you find them better than the 400 , but i am waiting to see the if i will get the 600...maybe if these malfunction i will work a replacement-upgrade with the 600)

If HFM kept the RE272's bass' curve but boosted certain parts of it by three or four dBs, it might've been the only universal IEM I'd have kept for the foreseeable future.  I loved everything else about its tuning.. the bass just lacked some impact and presence for my personal taste.  When matched with a proper amp & DAC, the resolution quality was almost e-stat-like.  I've had the HD800 for quite some time now and I'm enamored by its silky smooth, effortless presentation.. the RE-272 is one of the few IEMs that reminds me of it in many ways (don't confuse that with it being on par with the HD800, though).  I still love & miss the 272.  I'm so tempted to grab one again before they're gone.  Especially since I have a Quickstep amp that features Meier's Active Balanced Ground technology (that's supposed to be a phenomenal pairing with the RE-272).

272s should've been kept, but maybe the RE600 fills that gap
post #300 of 418

i think that its relatively high price (250$) combined with hiiman's low infiltration to the public eye(they ain't Senheiser) probably kept its sales low

I don't think re-600 will be a hit , i mean i see the shure-846 having so many hits and i am like 'why are you wasting so much money on an overpriced universal?'

 

then again , like everything in life , not many people will scratch beneath the information surface for what is really worth

 

in any way , i think i will grab a pair of re-600 while they are around , cause i have a fear hifiman will disconnect them like it did with all its previous iems....

 

don't know what it is , but i seem to have grown a hifiman love ( 4/5 iems i have purchased since 2010 were hifiman products , and this will probably end up becoming 5/6...)
